Man, the bad news just keeps rolling in on Amy Winehouse. Now it seems she has a case of the Big E, and I do not mean Ecstacy.
“The doctors have told her if she goes back to smoking drugs, it won’t just ruin her voice, it will kill her,” Mitch Winehouse was quoted as saying in The Sunday Mirror. “There are nodules around the chest and dark marks. She has 70 percent lung capacity.”
According to Mitch, doctors told his daughter that she’d end up like an old lady with a breathing mask if she didn’t stop inhaling smoke of all flavors.
Winehouse collapsed at her north London home Monday after signing autographs for a group of fans and was taken to a London hospital for tests. She remained in the hospital all week but is scheduled to perform live on Friday in clebration of Nelson Mandela’s 90th nirthday.
“When she’s been inactive work-wise then that’s when the problems really start. The doctors have said that medically there isn’t any reason why she can’t do Glastonbury,” the paper quoted him as saying.
And that’s not all Mitch had to say, the NME quotes him as publicly calling out Pete Doherty as one of several bad influences he’d like his daughter to dump.
“I don’t want her hanging out with her mates like Pete Doherty,” he said. “What hope does she have if people are taking drugs around her?”
Perhaps he could ground her or take away her cell phone for a month?
